Printer needed!

I have a portable device, which I need a printer for. The printer must have a parallel (DB-25) port. I need the printer to be as small as possible, so I can take it with me to different places. But be able to do basic A4 printouts (just text). I found a small printer but the cartridges were like £30 each!.

So basically. I want a cheap, small printer, which does basic A4 prints out. Which uses cheap ink cartridges. The smaller the printer, the better!

I don’t know anything about printers. So any help would be grateful!

I don't have any recommendations for a printer, but I think I can expand your options a bit. As I am sure you have discovered, more and more printers don't come with parallel (LPT) ports any more, but instead come with USB ports, are wireless, and/or have an Ethernet port. Using an USB to LPT Adapter will allow you to connect USB printers to computers that don't have USB. You might also consider a PC Card adapter.
